The start of a new school year means a blank slate for you and your child. You may look at September as a time to make new resolutions that are even more meaningful than those made in January, especially if past years have presented stumbling blocks. If many of these struggles occurred because of miscommunication or resentment between you and your spouse, you may wish to amend that for the sake of your child.
Working with a co-parent after a divorce or breakup is a challenge, to be certain. There may be times when you want to get even or act out on your feelings of resentment. Perhaps in the past, you did just this. However, this year can be different, and family counselors offer some tips for making it a success.
